COMMENTS FROM FOSTER: Bo gets along wonderfully with his two medium-sized dogs foster siblings, one male and one female. He loves to wrestle and play tug, and play with his toys. He loves doing zoomies around the yard with his foster siblings so a fenced in yard would be the perfect fit for this playful guy!
He's a very happy, very energetic pup, but he's also able to quiet down and just hang out. Based on his energy level, speed, personality, and willingness to please, as well as his ability to learn, he would make an awesome agility or flyball candidate! He would do best in a home that could give him the exercise/engagement that he needs.
He has met the family kitties, both of whom do well with respectful dogs, and would very much like to play with them but doesn't seem to get the size disparity. His foster mom is working on helping him learn to respect their space and do not leave them unsupervised.
Bo loves children! He gets very excited around them so children over eight years of age would be best.
Bo goes into his crate on his own for meals or a treat. He quiets down quickly, especially if left with something to chew on.
Bo is an awesome little guy! He's super smart, and wonderfully happy. He would love to be somebody's best friend.
EVERY DOG HAS A STORY: Bo, along with many other dogs, were rescued by BFPA right before Hurricane Matthew hit NC. He was pulled from a rural shelter which got flooded but he was happily in his new foster home by that time.
